Bluey Robinson

Wow! Wow! Wow! Where has he been? I can’t believe I’ve never heard of him until DJ Michael Ealey of Streetwise Radio started playing him. On-air radio stations are out of their minds, they need to do their research on talented amazing artist like Bluey Robinson they need to be heard. Bluey Robinson was born in Sweden and raised in England he is of Trinidadian and Swedish decent. Bluey reminds me of Stevie Wonder with perfect soprano voice and El DeBarge hitting those high notes he is truly talented. He grew up listening to his mom’s record collection that consisted of artist like Bob Marley, The Drifters, UB40 and Jackson 5 and it shows in his music, He is so soulful. I like him a lot. This 20 something singer-songwriter released two singles “Showgirl” and “Coming Back” in 2011. Both of these songs are going on my playlist along with “I Know featuring Ryan Leslie”, “I Know (Studio Acoustic Version)”, “Take A Chance On Me”, “Think of me”, “Gotta Be A Way” and “Beautiful Eyes”. Bluey Robinson is one artist that is so soulful he should go straight to the top. It would be a shame if he doesn’t. You can tune into Streetwise Radio and listen to Bluey Robinson. You can also listen to Streetwise Radio on Pandora, iTunes, MyGen365, Athena365 and Live365.

Ntjam Rosie

I was listening to Streetwise Radio and I heard Ntjam Rosie “I Need”.  I thought this is a song that is going on my playlist. This 30 year old jazz, soul singer and songwriter from Sonkoe, Cameroon is an amazing songstress. Ntjam debut was in 2008 with her album “Atouba” since then she put out 3 more albums, “Elle” in 2010, “Live at Grounds” in 2012 and “At the Back of Beyond” in 2013. Ntjam sound is a mixture of two of my favorite artists Jill Scott and India Arie. The song “At the back of beyond” the title of her 2013 album is a beautiful song. My favorite song “At the Back of Beyond”, “Thinkin About You” and “Love is Calling”. Ntjam Rosie is a beautiful and talented remarkable artist. Streetwise Radio is playing songs from Ntjam Rosie. You can listen to Streetwise Radio on Pandora, iTunes, Live365, Athena365 and MyGen365.

This 43 year old R&B singer from Michigan is so underrated. His career did not take off like it should have. Rome signed with RCA and released his debut album “Rome” in 1997 selling over half a million copies. I remember his song "I Belong to You (Everytime I See Your Face)" was a hit. I was sure after that song we would be hearing from Rome for many years to come . Well that was not the case. While Rome was still under contract with RCA when he tried to put out his second album “Thank You” it was rejected by RCA and it was never released. This goes to show you that the record industry can make or break a career. It is a shame that some really talented artists never get their chance to shine. Rome came out with three other albums after leaving RCA “Rome 2000: Thank You”, “To The Highest” and “Do It”. Rome is an amazing singer that in my opinion can sing better than some of these well-known singers out there. Some of my favorite songs from Rome are “Never Be A Love“, “Just Once, Once More, Three Times”, “Real Love” and “Real Joy”. You can listen to songs from Rome on Streetwise Radio. You can also listen to Streetwise Radio on Pandora, iTunes, MyGen365, Athena365 and Live365.
